> DESCRIPTION

Japanese photographer Yamamoto Masao regards his images as the equivalent of a "haiku moment," when meaning or insight is suddenly made clear.   He titled his current body of work, "Kawa," which is the Japanese word for "river" or "flow" to suggest both a connection as well as a divide between the present and past.  His spare and meditative photos depict natural subjects such as a freshly split log, mushrooms growing on heavy rope or crystalline dewdrops on the wings of a dragonfly.  Writing for the LA TIMES, Leah Ollman suggested that each photo is "a moment of grace" and that Yamamoto's work affords one the opportunity "to experience stillness and contemplate beauty, eternity."
